TOLEDO, OH - (Marketwired - Dec 31, 2015) - Marco's Pizza is seeking entrepreneurs who want a piece of the hot New Mexico restaurant market. Prime locations are available, and Marco's is actively seeking franchisees to bring fresh, Ah!thentic, Italian-style pizza to the Land of Enchantment.
Job growth is up 1.2 percent in New Mexico, making it a great spot for new businesses like Marco's Pizza. The population is growing, too, topping 2.1 million. A U.S. Department of Agriculture study of American eating habits found that on any given day, 13 percent of the U.S. population is eating pizza. In New Mexico, that means 273,000 people eat pizza every day; Marco's Pizza is ready to grab a big slice of that market.
Unlike our competitors who have oversaturated their markets, Marco's Pizza still has prime locations available in regions across the U.S. -- New Mexico is one of them.
Marco's Pizza has the fastest-growing unit growth, according to Nation's Restaurant News, who named the beloved pizza franchise as part of its Second 100 List - an analysis of businesses that are smaller but are focusing on growing around the nation. Marco's opened its 500th location in 2013, its 600th restaurant in 2014, and is on pace to open its 1,000th location in early 2017.
The publication states that while the pizza industry is mature and growth is limited, Marco's Pizza is the exception. Not only is Marco's growing faster than other pizza franchises, Marco's Pizza sales growth also is higher than any other pizza franchise. The publication reports that Marco's Pizza sales growth is tops for system-wide sales in the Second 100 pizza segment.
Marco's Pizza is seeking quality franchisees who are committed to making their franchises places where customers want to buy fresh, delectable pizza -- welcoming, friendly individuals who remember customers' names and are passionate about the Marco's product. The investment required to start a Marco's Pizza franchise is typically about $350,000. The pizza franchise is looking for people who have a net worth of $150,000 and a minimum liquidity of $100,000.
"Our franchisees come from a remarkably wide variety of backgrounds. But there's a common thread among our franchisees -- passion for the Marco's product. Almost half of them were Marco's consumers first. They fell in love with our product," said Cameron Cummins, Vice President of Franchise Development for Marco's Pizza.
Previous restaurant experience is not necessary to open a Marco's Pizza. The company's team of veteran pizza executives has experience growing brands and is always ready to help franchisees throughout their careers.
At a six-week training at Marco's University, franchisees learn how to make the perfect pizza in the company's state-of-the-art kitchen.
In addition to learning about the product and how it is made, the company helps franchisees learn to manage the business side of the franchise. Franchisees learn how to train staff, manage finances and study market analysis, as well as learn the insurance requirements, leasing issues and marketing savvy needed to be successful.
